About this event

This event is part of Made in Singapore 2021 is a two-week-long free virtual event series showcasing pioneers and dreamers reinventing the way we live, work, and play on our little red dot and beyond. Check out the rest of the series here.

Fashion retail therapy in Singapore isn’t limited to international designer labels and highstreet brands. Our sunny island is also a hotbed of local creativity. Home to world-class artisans, craftsmen, and fashion designers, our metropolis boasts a whole range of everything original from wardrobe staples to high-end statement pieces that proudly don the tag “Made-In-Singapore”.

With a projected revenue of $470m in 2020 and annual growth rate of 12.6%, Singapore’s fashion industry is definitely one to watch. There, however, is still a long way to go and hoops to jump over, some of which include unsustainable production capacities, high rents, and low awareness of local brands, before local players can capture the hearts (and wallets) of consumers.

From emerging labels to heavyweights in the scene, come hear from some of the biggest names in our fashion industry who are putting Singapore on the global map! We’ll discuss how far the industry has come, challenges of starting a local fashion label and getting recognized, how emerging technologies are styling the industry, and what's next for the local fashion scene.

  • Maddy Barber | Founder, Madly Singapore
